France: Pro-Palestinian rioters want to "hunt Jews and kill them"

Fourteen French police officers were wounded and 38 people were arrested at an unauthorized rally to protest Israel’s actions in Gaza.

The clashes in Paris occurred as approximately 3,000 protesters, who on Saturday defied a city-issued ban on their planned demonstration near the Gare Du Nord train station, began marching up Barbes Boulevard, a police source said. When riot police stopped them, they hurled bottles and other objects at the officers, resulting in minor injuries.

In London, approximately 10,000 people attended a protest rally that featured calls to destroy Israel.
Similar calls were heard in Paris, where protesters also burned Israeli flags as the crowd cheered them on. One group of a dozen men spoke loudly about “hunting Jews and killing them.”

Jewish shop owners closed down their businesses and stayed away from the area on Saturday, according to Victor Sofer, a Jewish barber. “They own the streets now,” he said of the protesters.
